"Most convenient of the pretty Riverdale Streets"
Although Oxford Avenue is a very pretty little Central Riverdale street, there are WAY more stately ones with majestic multi-million dollar mansions in Riverdale. However, I like Oxford the best because not only is it clean, safe & pretty, it's the most walk-friendly of the prettiest & quietest residential streets of Riverdale. Although parking is relatively easy, you don't need to depend on a vehicle to live on Oxford since it's the closest Riverdale street to the subway, supermarket, banks, coffee shops & restaurants, parks, dog walk, schools, gym, etc. At the base of the street is a gorgeous hilly park called Ewen Park that I like to take my dog to and read. I do live on Oxford Avenue but it was because of a strategic choice. I wanted to live in a safe and quiet area but I didn't want to lose the walkable city conveniences I had when I lived in Manhattan. I been living at Oxford seven years now, and it was the best decision I've ever made.
